with clinton or biden. 2016. >> oh. >> you've been close to both of them. secretary panetta, i've got to ask you, who's ready to be commander in chief tomorrow? >> i think both of them -- i have worked with both of them. if they make the decision they want to be commander in chief, i think they are both qualified to do it. >> what's their distinctive strengths? >> i for joe biden, obviously as vice president, knowing the world, knowing the issues involved, knowing what it means to govern from that perspective. and for hillary clinton, she knows it from every angle now, having worked in the white house, been a part of that, and now as secretary of state knowing the world. >> biden or clinton? >> i'd like to see which of the harbah brothers come out on top. >> gentlemen, thank you both for being here. >> thank you, chuck. good to see you. >> as secretary panetta prepares to leave government service again, we spent some additional time with him on press pass to talk about that long career as a congressman, budget director, white house chief of staff, and director of the cia. he also weighs in o
not expanding. i do believe everybody in america has access to affordable hillary clinton. i agree with what the president said in 2009. doesn't make sense to put more people without expanding it, reforming it. >> governor? >> national health care is based on our own experiment in massachusetts. it's been wildly successful. over 90% of our residents have access to medicare, 99.3% of children, i think it is, of children. i don't think any other state in america can touch that. there are more businesses offering insurance to their employees today than before health care reform went into effect. it has not broken our budget and it's very, very popular. we have found a tremendous amount of flexibility with this administration and actually with the bush administration before them in implementing this. i understand that there are philosophical reasons for not supporting this president's solution. but rather than having the usual choices, which was between a perfect solution and no solution, we tried something in this country. i congratulate the president. >> gun control, looks like there may be so
, where he's got a real opportunity here even on guns in a way that bill clinton didn't in the mid '90s where it was such a toxic issue. >> there may be issues where the outside gains help. on immigration, it doesn't help at all. right now there are republican partners like senator rubio don't need pressure. they need cover in their own party. when he increases the pressure, he is actually empowering the critics, the conservative critics of immigration reform. so he's going to have to take an approach. if he wants to do that on the economy, which he has done many times, and likely will do in this speech, i hope he carves out immigration as an exception because that is both a huge lead, a legacy issue for the president, a rights issue for the country, but it's going to require a legislative strategy of building coalitions which he doesn't seem particularly interested in. >> but if he leads, mike, he can face outright rejection. >> he has to make a choice. is he still a candidate? is he about making political victories? he can score on immigration, isolate republicans, and blow up the dea
the president, where he's got a real opportunity here. even on guns, in a way that bill clinton didn't in the mid-'90s, where it was such a toxic issue. >> there may be issues where the outside game helps. unfortunately, on immigration it doesn't help at all. right now there are republican partners, like senator rubio, that they don't need pressure. they actually need cover in their own party. >> exactly. >> and if, when he increases the pressure, he's actually empowering the critics, the conservative critics of immigration reform. so, he's going to have to take an approach. if he wants to do that on the economy, which he's done, you know, many times, and is likely to do in this speech, i hope he carves out immigration as an exception, because that is both a huge lead, a legacy issue for the president, it's the right issue for the country, but it's going to require a legislative strategy of building coalitions, which he doesn't seem particularly -- >> but if he leads, mike, he could face outright rejection. >> he's got to make a choice. if he's still a candidate, he's about making po
clinton on benghazi. we saw john kerry go through a hearing. and chuck hagel. and you can not compare the first two to chuck haguel. after i watched the hearing, i remembered the lyrics to a country song. you mean i shaved my legs for this? you mean we're having this huge fight over this guy who cannot even articulate our policy towards iran? >> robert? >> let's be clear. >> this performance was not good. >> two things. i want to go about something that ana just said. if you turned on cspan and hadn't watched tv in the intervening six years, you would think we had 150,000 troops parked right now in iraq. this next defense secretary is not going to deal with iraq and the surge. this was a vanity thing for john mccain to try to approprove to former friend who disagreed with him that he was right on the surge and that chuck hagel was wrong. >> what should hagel have said? what would you have told him to say? >> i think he said correctly, we're going to let history judge iraq, because frankly chuck hagel could have said, senator mccain, i think i might have been wrong on iraq. were you wr
